A practical method is presented for the structural design of large turbogenerator supports of reinforced concrete. The loads and forces acting on the support are enumerated, their origin is explained and their values are appraised. Computations for one cross bent are presented in detail and the advantages of embedded steel girders to resist horizontal forces, is emphasized. The method is applicable to the design of foundations for units of 20,000 KW or larger.The general layout and loading arrangements of all makes are similar, only the values of loading and dimensions differ.
